While our struggle to get pregnant came with so many hard and trying times, I can say that there have been so many blessings that have come from it. I know there are many lessons, blessings and experiences I would have not had if we would've gotten pregnant when we wanted to.
One of those blessings has been experiencing the power of prayer and encouragement from others. Last weekend my mom, sister and sister in law through me a baby shower and everyone that was there has prayed for and waited for this baby. My struggle through infertility would have been a completely different experience without these woman in my life. Some who I shared everything with and others who just knew we were struggling and faithfully prayed for us.
It was amazing to look around the room, full of woman who love me, love this baby and have been a part of our journey the last two and half years. People from all areas of my life: work, college, high school, family, and even a few of my mom's friends who have been constantly praying for me were there. It was a room full of good listeners, prayer warriors, women full of encouragement and love who have been there for me.
My sister gave this beautiful talk that brought me (and many others) to tears. Sharing how wanted this baby is and how prayed for and loved she already is. She also gave some amazing advice and encouragement to me as a new mom (which I will have her share here soon).
